...in any case, it is good to be watching Turkey at the moment because it is in a crisis far beyond what most other countries are struggling with at present.

Comparing Cyprus to Turkey, it can be said that the anxiousness it caused along with the denial, led to disaster.

...it is hard to believe that Turkey's economy, in two years will be that much different; and it will be up to the Turkish People as voters if they want change.

knocking off a few zeros doesnt change anything,

it might fool a few people for a short period of time

But the real exchange rate is 12 million lira to the dollar.

I am commenting on the state of the Turkish economy, because I have an interest in finance and economics.

Unlike you and Bordo, who are getting triggered and trying to snipe at me, the GC's, and the Cypriot economy from 10 years ago.

:roll:


Well from my perspective I would say look at the evidence :)

What triggered me to enter this thread was nothing to do with 'defending Turkey'. I was triggered by the irony of someone who had been predicting imminent capital controls in Turkey for over ten years now and has still yet to be proven correct and was doing so through the entire period that the RoC itself underwent capital controls.

You seem pretty Turkey focused to me. You have a general interest in finance and economics but seem reluctant to discuss the thesis that what Erdogan is doing to an extreme degree, prioritising growth over inflation, is exactly what all central banks / governments have been doing since 2008 crash. Advance economies had already slashed base rates to zero and even past it and have been printing money via the smoke and mirrors of quantative easing. So erdogan is doing this to an extreme but it is clear that globaly we have all been doing the same thing. Keep growth going and worry about the inflationary consequences later. Somehow I do not think such a discussion is of interest to you because of your Turkey myopia.

Anyway we have been here before. I have said this before (as my opinion) and you have denied it before but there is actual hard complete evidence. You talk Turkey more than me. Absolute. Relative. any way you slice it.

You said it yourself. I talk about crypto because I care about crypto. I do not talk as much about Turkey as you do because I actually do not care about Turkey as much as you do. Makes sense to me anyway. The evidence is all there and from where I am sitting its pretty dam compelling. Want me to run some stats for you ? From the complete and total evidence available to all. Probably not.

...you've got to hand it to the Turkish People, they find ways to protest against Erdogan, without getting arrested.



...burning dollars for example, instead of lira.

You bordo

Have you got any Turkish music to post for us, while Earholez runs those statistics on me to prove he is not Turkish?

https://www.theguardian.com/business/20 ... r-governor

a couple of links for those who 'have an interest in finance and economics'.

As to stats on who here really is more Turkey obsessed, as I said the evidence is pretty compelling imo.
